Crystal Renay Smith has accused Ne-Yo of cheating with multiple women, and on Aug. 4 it was reported by TMZ that she filed for divorce. Smith is now claiming that Ne-Yo had a child with another woman.
In the divorce documents that were filed earlier in the week, Smith says the marriage is “irretrievably broken with no hope of reconciliation.”
Smith says the date of their separation was July 22, and she’s been taking care of their three kids since.
In an Instagram post on July 31, Smith told the world that she was leaving Ne-Yo for good.
“Eight years of lies and deception. Eight years of unknowingly sharing my life and husband with numerous women who sell their bodies to him unprotected … every last one of them! To say I’m heartbroken and disgusted is an understatement,” Smith said.
“To ask me to stay and accept it is absolutely insane. The mentality of a narcissist. I will no longer lie to the public or pretend that this is something it isn’t. I choose me, I choose my happiness and health and my respect. I gained three beautiful children out of this, but nothing else [except] wasted years and heartache. I ask that you all please stop sending me videos or information of him cheating because what he does is no longer my concern. I am not a victim. I’m choosing to stand tall with my head held high. If someone can’t love you the way you deserve, then it’s up to you to love yourself. With no hate in my heart I wish him nothing but the best.”
In response, Ne-Yo posted a tweet on the same day and asked for privacy for himself and his family.
"For the sake of our children, my family and I will work through our challenges behind closed doors. Personal matters are not meant to be addressed and dissected in public forums. I simply ask that you please respect me and my family’s privacy at this time.”
